This post could be considered bragging but sometimes, you just have to show off a little.
I just won third place in the New Jersey Collegiate Press Association’s contest for biography/personality profile writing and I will have the honor of joining the staff of my school newspaper at an awards ceremony on April 12! Yes, I know it’s third place but it’s still an honor!
Here are the winning profiles:
This was a story I wrote about Rowan University alumna Angie Weeks who went on to become singer songwriter Angie Falcon. Angie used songwriting to help her get through a difficult relationship and since then, has grown to make songs for others.
In addition, my co-workers won some awards as well and I cannot be more proud to be a part of The Whit staff!
Here are the winning articles:
Second place in Biography/Personality Writing to Erica Avery
First place in Column/Opinion Writing to Matthew Turner
First place in Enterprise/Investigative Reporting to Christian Hetrick
